I have SCCM 2007. I'm Setting up SCCM 2012 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Do I have to do a Migration or can I build a New SCCM 2012 and point the clients to it?

    Just Not sure if a Migration is needed...

  • You don't actually have to remove the 2007 client as ccmsetup in 2012 will remove it for you. If you do this via client push, then there's nothing additional that you need to do. If you do this with another method, you'll most likely have to reset the rusted root key, but that's just a Property to set on ccmsetup command-line.

    Setting up a new hierarchy is perfectly acceptable if you don't care about anything in the 2007 hierarchy. Just make sure you use a unique/new site code and server name(s) to differentiate between old and new.

  • You can it's just a little complicated dependent on environment.

    The longer answer involving removing the 2007 client and installing the 2012 client and pointing it towards the 2012 environment is possible and then just allow the clients to check in. 

    You can also update the client with SCCM.

    Here's the Microsoft how too.

    Well that's what I was hoping for...should the 2007 server be put offline or does the 2012 server have more authority? Also I'm running SCUP & WSUS anything to be done to them...

  • You can run the 2007 and 2012 server at the same time.  The clients won't see each other.  If you have the boundary groups set for site assignment in 2012 and you click "Find" on the site, then you can have clients find the wrong infra.  We saw this during our migration.

  • I have used an SCCM 2007 package to deploy the SCCM 2012 Client successfully in the past.  I did this for the initial bulk deployment, then Client Push to get the remaining non client objects.

    Yes don't set boundary groups for site assignment and ensure that you specify site code when installing the 2012 client to ensure they report into the 2012 site correctly.
